Acceleration and Credit by Exam

  • Welcome to the Credit by Examination testing process. Credit by Exam provides a way for students to receive credit and advance. Students must be registered in a Lewisville ISD school and attending, if school is in session, in order to be eligible to test.

    Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade may test to move ahead one grade level. High school students may earn credit in a course that they have not taken or under certain circumstances may earn credit for a course which they took but for which they did not receive credit. We invite you to visit the links below for more specific information on dates, courses and testing.

    This website is updated periodically as new information is available. Refer back periodically for changes to the calendar and course requirements. To register for testing, the student needs to obtain testing application(s) from his/her school counselor. For general questions about Credit by Exam, please contact the Credit by Exam Office.
